Slow Art Day, held at galleries and museums around the world, has a simple mission: to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at art and objects.

Take part in this special photography edition of Slow Art Day at the Museum by getting up close to a selection of rarely-seen photographs from our collection. You'll be captivated by the stories they tell. Meet with an expert curator, grab a cup of tea or coffee, learn about the history of photography, and share what you have discovered by looking slowly. Of course, you’re free to stray from the library and choose your own collections to ponder too.

Discover more about this annual global event at the Slow Art Day website and check out #slowartday.

Slow Art Day is an intimate event and spaces are limited, book now to secure your place.

Slow Art Day is a part of Artweek 2017.
